DUSSELDORF, Germany , October 18, 2022 (press release) –

Avient Corporation , a premier provider of specialized and sustainable material solutions and services, is introducing new recycled and bio-based polyolefin formulations at the upcoming K 2022, further extending its sustainability portfolio in Europe .

Maxxam™ REC recycled polyolefins are formulated with 25-100% recycled resin from post-industrial recycled (PIR) and post-consumer recycled (PCR) sources. Maxxam™ BIO bio-based polyolefins are formulated with 15-100% bio-based resin and/or natural filler from renewable plant sources. Both solutions offer a more sustainable alternative to traditional polyolefin grades while achieving comparable performance.

"With brands across many industries making commitments to incorporate more recycled and bio-based materials into their products, we are constantly developing formulations that help enable these goals," said Matt Mitchell , director global marketing, Specialty Engineered Materials. "Maxxam REC and Maxxam BIO polyolefins are the latest additions to our growing sustainability portfolio. They can be used in a broad range of industries and applications where traditional polyolefin materials are used. This includes transportation, industrial, consumer, electrical and electronic, and building and construction industries."

The new formulations can be fully customized to meet specific application needs. They can be filled and reinforced or blended with glass, minerals, impact modifiers, colorants, and stabilizer systems to satisfy the required performance characteristics, including flame retardant performance.

Maxxam™ BIO formulations are natural and are easy to color. They have a pleasing surface finish, and food contact compliance can be obtained. Maxxam™ REC grades are available in darker shades.

Avient is also pleased to announce its Nymax™ BIO bio-based polyamide formulations are now available in Europe , with formulations between 16% and 47% natural filler from renewable plant sources, including corn, straw, and wheat. Manufactured at Avient's Shanghai facility in Asia when initially launched, these grades are now also manufactured locally in Avient's facility in Germany .

Avient will exhibit at Hall 8A/G10 at K 2022 in Düsseldorf, Germany , from October 19-26, 2022 .
